Part three approaches... · 10:50pm Oct 18th, 2012

With the conclusion of the Whitewall arc, the end of part two is in sight. Once we move on to part three, the end of the story will be pretty close, because part three is several chapters shorter than two. Stay tuned! And as always, thanks for reading.

Dem Updates (and some questions for the readership!) · 3:49am Oct 3rd, 2012

For anyone wondering why my updates tend to come in bursts with long gaps in between, a little background on my writing style might be helpful. I typically wait until a weekend where I'm absolutely free (ie, no homework/urgent crises to deal with/raging Guild Wars addiction binges) in order to write, because when I get "in the zone", as 'twere, I usually end up vomiting text into my word processor until 4AM. I type up 2-4 chapter chunks, depending on how long the chapters are, which is why they

Up...date? · 11:44pm Sep 29th, 2012

Yes, it's that time of year again! (Namely, midterms have finished, and I have time to write)

Status Update · 12:27pm Jul 12th, 2012

To anyone wondering what's going on with the fic at the moment, I AM working on new stuff, but it will be a while coming yet. I'm also doing further touching up of some of the earlier chapters (namely the forest/cave section in Rye's story, and fixing perspective issues in Windstreak's story). I've finally got a new reviewer looking at it, but they have to work their way through all 110k words before they can review any of the new chapters.

Backlog finished · 4:38pm Jun 4th, 2012

Right, all the finished chapters are up now. Updates are going to be slowing down from now on.

Also, I'm still looking for a new proofreader/critic to go over new chapters, since Vanner no longer does reviews. I need someone who's an absolute grammar nazi, hates passive voice, and will rip my plot developments to shreds. If you're interested, send me a PM.

Working on new chapters now. I've also added a map of Sleipnord to the start of part 2.

Cover 2.0 · 6:39am May 26th, 2012

First version of the new cover is done! Anyone have any recommendations for changes? I'm not so sure those banners look good against all those vectors. (Thanks to Cedric for the desaturation suggestion)

Yet another update · 4:09am May 26th, 2012

First chapter of part 2 as well as another preview for the new cover. Should be done by tomorrow, hopefully. Then I can get back to writing.

New Cover Previews · 1:32pm May 24th, 2012

A new Clement sketch and a vector of Celerity for you today.



My aim with the new cover is to get more people to actually read it. The map just isn't very inviting, I fear.
